Prince George’s leads the state in foreclosures. Recently, there have been recent signs of an uptick in the county housing market.
At noon, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) is scheduled to announce the random selection of two pre-qualified purchasers who have applied for a lottery to buy homes in Suitland at reduced prices.
The free event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex, 8001 Sheriff Rd., Landover, adjacent to FedEx Field.
“We are expecting hundreds of homeowners, first-time home buyers and people in the rental market. The fair will be filled with exhibitors, workshops, seminars and important information about a variety of housing issues,” said Prince George’s Housing Director Eric C. Brown, in a statement.
